I never liked to eat the stuff out of hand or on a cheese sandwich, but yeah, that government commodity cheese makes really good homemade mac n' cheese. My stepmom used to make that. I've also had cheese puffs made with it plus commodity butter and powdered milk, and it wasn't bad.

If you have enough money for any type of meat in your dish, you may be poor-but you ain't PO'!

No Dough Hobo Soup.

Find a used styrofoam cup outside a 7-11 or similar convenience store.
Fill cup with water-If you can't find a bathroom faucet-use the air/water hose at a nearby gas station.
Go inside the 7-11 and take 2-4 ketchup packets* from the condiment bin. *(Depending on size of cup and personal preference)
Open packets and add to the cup of water.
Mix with available coffee stir.
Place cup and contents into microwave (available to heat other 7-11 food like burritos, sandwiches etc.) and heat for 60 seconds on HIGH.
Remove from microwave (*CONTENTS MAY BE HOT-CAUTION!*) and season with salt/pepper packets from the condiment bin.
Enjoy your soup!


(In places all over the west and parts of the south-hot sauce/taco sauce may be available in the condiment bin to further enhance your soup experience. Do not forget the free hot dog condiments such as onions or relish and pico de gallo or salsa that is used for nachos. Mix and match according to region, preference and/or religious dietary restrictions)

This sounds pathetic, but I get a cheap but huge loaf of bread, freeze the remainder and sloooowly eat it with salt/pepper/butter/olive oil/soy sauce/whatever condiments I have left or manage to pilfer from McDonalds. 2 can last me a week!

When I first moved out at 18 and would rather have starved than asked my Mom for help my roommate and I ate a lot of plain or buttered noodles with canned veggies. I used to feed the kids I babysat Ramen with a sliced hotdog or two and whatever veggies their mom had in the house in it. Good thing they loved it because they ate it nearly every day.

Five years later when I had a good job but had just bought a house (my house payment was $323, those were the days lol) and often had to choose between groceries and TP after the bills were paid, I was still eating noodles but usually with cream of mushroom or chicken soup over them. I also learned to make a mean navy bean soup. Smoked ham hocks could be had for 29 lb back before they got trendy, a 3 lb box of bacon ends was 99 or a drop or two of liquid smoke makes bean soup taste meaty even if there's nothing in it but salt, pepper and onion.

Fried potatoes with hot dogs sliced up in them.

We were pretty poor when I was a kid and there was a time when it was beans and cornbread for dinner every night. If dad had a bigger than expected paycheck then there would be ground beef or a hamhock in the beans. During this time breakfast was usually white rice with a little milk and sugar.

Goes good with corn bread.


Gizzards.....just buy those innard pieces from the meat dept, roll them in flour and fry. That spatula full of lard scares me every time......

Only had those damn gizzards ONCE......I think I'll stick with beans and cornbread.


Oh and let's not forget hot dogs cut up into mac n cheese.

Fried hot dog or bologna sandwiches anyone?

yup powdered milk. We drank that a lot as kids too. It wasn't too bad as long as it was really really cold.

I'm pretty broke these days, but not as broke as I was as a kid. When you're a kid, broke parents mean you're broke too - there's no way to dig yourself out.

Here is what my mother used to make in rough times, and what my siblings and I referred to as 'recycled chicken':

- Boil the living shit out of a big econo-sized package of chicken thighs and drumsticks. Fish out the chicken and dump maybe four thighs worth of meat back into the broth. Add potatoes, carrots, onions, noodles and seasoning and you have soup. Serve day one. Not too shabby.

- Take the remaining chicken thighs and drumsticks and attempt to "crisp them up" on the barbecue. Drench them in barbecue sauce to try and hide how dried out they are. You will inevitably fail. Serve day two with frozen peas and minute rice. Pretty shabby.

- Take the remaining barbecued chicken thighs and drumsticks, peel off the charred skin, and chop up the meat. Mix the meat with mayonnaise (because at this point it is so parched you wouldn't be able to get it down otherwise) and serve it on day three as chicken salad sandwiches. Shabby.


This pattern happened several times a month. I think this is one of the reasons I no longer eat chicken as an adult.

We were very poor when I was growing up, but we had livestock and turkey/chickens that we bred for food, and my father tended a huge garden that he filled with root vegetables, lettuce & cabbage, corn, and a variety of berries. My father & brothers also hunted for animals to supplement our diet during the wintertime -- usually deer, squirrel, rabbit, pheasant (I loved deer but couldn't bring myself to choke down anything else). We were actually very fortunate in that we always had plenty to eat. My mother was a very good cook, and we always had a hot breakfast and huge dinners. I can't believe it now, but back then, I'd have gladly traded my steaks and chops for a hotdog or a cheap Totinos pizza or standard "kid" food. Ironic, I know

Some of my favorites were, actually, the cheapest things to make: wilted lettuce salad with crumbly fried bacon & coated in the hot bacon grease ... corned beef & cabbage with new potatoes ... chicken 'n dumplings ... huge pots of spaghetti sauce using tomatoes & fresh herbs from the garden with savory hand-made meatballs. I loved biscuits & sawmill gravy (though my dad grew up during the Depression era when this was the only food he got, so if we had this too often, he'd complain).

I'm not much of a cook, but I have become adept at putting together a few simple ingredients for relatively cheap meals. Ramen noodles are a staple in our home, though I at least never use those disgusting sodium-infused spice packets that are included with the noodles.

My all-time favorite cheap meal: Stuffed bell peppers. Recipe as follows:

3-4 large green bell peppers - tops sliced off & seeds/innards scooped out.
1 pound of ground beef
1-2 medium sized diced tomatoes (can use canned tomatoes as well)
1 cup of cooked white rice
1/4 cup of italian-style breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 minced garlic cloves
Seasoning salt & onion powder to taste
1 1/2 tsp worchester (spelling?) sauce
1/4 jar of spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup cheddar cheese plus another 1/4 cup set aside


Fry the garlic (and onions, if you use them) in a small amount of oil. Add the hamburger and brown it. Add all other ingredients when the hamburger is nearly done and simmer until it's a nice, thick, fragrant paste. Scoop equal portions into each bell pepper, adding some fresh cheddar cheese to the top of each. Bake @ 350 until done -- usually about 20 minutes.

Oh, one last thing ... sometimes I will boil the peppers first, for about 3-4 minutes, before putting them in the oven. That makes them nice and soft.

I made some french onion soup last night, and that's cheap and easy to make. Slice up 2-3 onions, sweat them in a couple tablespoons of butter for about 20 minutes over medium-low heat, add 2 cups beef broth (I used chicken stock) and two cups water, season with salt and pepper, bring to boil, return to simmer for 20 minutes. In the meantime, stick some stale bread under the broiler to brown them, then rub them with a clove of garlic. Put the bread in bowls, divide the soup up over them (two servings, or one very generous serving), top with cheese. I used jack and parm cheeses - use whatever you have on hand (swiss is good). You can stick the ovenproof bowls under the broiler to melt the cheese if you want.

Cheap and tasty.

My mother used to buy blocks of "govment" cheese from her co-workers around the holidays because she insisted that they made the best macaroni and cheese.

My very southern father had a huge garden about 40 miles away from the urban suburb where I grew up. The yield from tending that space in the spring and summer was the difference between feast and famine a lot of the time. When things got tight and it was every man for himself, my standby meal was (and still is) plain cooked spaghetti tossed with butter and a very generous amount of black pepper.

Lentan Fridays when my father's job didn't pay much, we had "poor Man's Omlettes", fried potatoes and onions, then eggs poured over it.

In college, I think 3 day old pizza my roommates actually left me.

I ate a lot of this growing up:

SOS (shit on a shingle):

Hamburger
Cream of Mushroom soup
Chopped onions and celery

Fry onions, celery, and hamburger, mix in cream of mushroom soup diluted with milk, powdered milk, half milk/half water, or water (bleah). Put over noodles.

I think the original SOS is supposed to be on toast, which is the "shingle", and I think the army version was probably creamed chipped beef? Anyway, I always had it over noodles.

Wow.. I'm hungry - I think I'll just stop by and grab Bio's bowl of soup ( I don't care that he's 6'7") - that is too tasty a soup to pass up

Great recipe - what I like is that you can adjust the amount of salt in the soup.

That is a very tasty omlette... Do you add any shredded cheese to the dish?

All this government cheese talk makes me remember my grandma. My grandma lived in VERY rural Michigan and she didn't have a lot of dishes she could prepare for us vegetarians so she'd make my favorite EVER mac n cheese. She used government cheese and chopped onions. I think she started my love affair with mac n cheese. I stayed with her for a month at a time a few summers and we'd go get her government cheese, milk in baggies and a few other staples. It brings back memories of the one on one time i got with her. I didn't get much of that with me being one of over 30 grandkids.

My poor meals:
I doctor up Kraft mac n cheese with things like salsa, chili powder or soy meat. It's 68 cents a box so it's very cheap.
I also make oriental flavored top ramen and throw in cubed sauteed tofu.
Top Ramen with vegetarian veggie soup mixed in.
I also make a casserole with cous couse, corn tortillas, a can of tomato sauce and 3 cans of vegetarian chili all baked in the oven with a smattering of cheese on top. It feeds my family of 3 two meals for less than 7 dollars
